  A modern Middle Way in Institutions and  Private Life  (in English and German)

Berlin

True to the motives of this website, the public and private life of this city are reflected. Both, however, could be covered in four respects. Can they be cautiously called dimensions or categories? Please forgive when it sounds like a mantra, but as the young people say: It fits.  

After the Bundestag election 2017  
Here we just mention a few lesser seen aspects of the public "body". The head always sees new street images and completely different buildings in many neighborhoods, and reflection reveals the trends to be discovered behind the design of the capital and the associated gentrification. The feelings are addressed by the not always the same behavior of its inhabitants, varying from mundane to rough and ready, and the expansiveness requires a lot of energy and good communication. The love life of the Berliners seems to be more brave than elsewhere, but also more inclined to polyamory, and the increasingly polarized power structures in the city vary between "ror-red-green" and "black-yellow" with silent population groups, for example, in the vast colonies of small garden cottages. The activities of the Berliners seem to concentrate more on their own city than elsewhere and people seem less likely to travel to other countries than in other cities, which may be only a subjective impression of a raven-like being, but as many other observers suggest "the inner wall" in people is still an unconscious remnant.
That not everything is fitting in the city, for example, is shown by disturbing reports of the Tagesspiegel not only about the police in Berlin. There are also big question marks concerning social support and about the promotion of culture. Underground-culture is not seldomly understood as the representative consumer culture of the upper class, while genuinely creative mostly small-scale culture only contributes in pretty restricted parts of the fastly growing city (Tagesspiegel May 9, 2017).
